Ferrite Magnets

Ceramic magnets are also known as Ferrite because they’re made from Strontium Ferrite which includes the element Strontium (Sr) an alkali earth metal that is number 38 on the Periodic Table. Ceramic magnets can also be made from Barium although the use of this has decreased because of the toxicity involved in making Barium Ferrite compared to Strontium based options. Barium Ferrite magnets are now rarely used with the exception of the manufacture of speaker rings where sound system manufacturers believe they contribute to a higher quality sound.

Products from our ceramic range have been used in stair lifts, guitar amplifier pick-ups, sensors, switches and for ferrous metal separation in mining and water conditioners. They are also very popular for craft and artistic applications.
